Kawaii felt kittens for Christmas

Kawaii kittens

I've wrapped and placed the final home-made Christmas gift for my daughter under the tree. It's this trio of cute felt kittens made from a sewing pattern purchased at the eleventh hour from Dolly and Paws at Etsy.

The pattern (a scanned PDF file) was instantly emailed upon purchase and looks like it comes from a Japanese craft book. Instructions are in Japanese but the pattern pieces are labelled in English with easy-to-follow picture diagrams.

I stitched these cats together while watching the final fantastic episode of BBC TV series Ripper Street and two episodes of ITV drama Lucan (which wasn't as enjoyable as sewing-along to Ripper Street, but I persevered to the end).

The finished kittens measure approximately 9cms high and are off the scale on the cute-o-meter.

  3. Television? Gadzooks, no. It's a new-fangled medium called Iplayer - all the rage round here, you can get today's news tomorrow!
